Interfaces, connecting devices

Interfaces, connecting devices
Potential-free make contact, control via network. Connection terminal strip for easy cabling of peripheral devices. If possible, the peripheral device is integrated into the housing. In combination with the Facility Management Control Unit (FMCU), additional devices and databases can also be built in according to customer requirements (see Accessories: FMCU).


After release by the integrated RFID reader, radar or control panel, the swivel arm opens in the direction of passage. Sensors on both sides detect from which side a person is coming. After the user has passed the system the swivel arm completely closes again. The integrated sensors monitor passage when the arms are open and when they are closed. LEDs in the glass dome, and at the swivel arm with toughened safety glass, signal release and tampering. All attempts at tampering and unauthorised access are prevented and indicated by the alarm.
